  • Hook Wire Gauge

    I'm looking at the Drennan Silverfish Pellet, but think the Tubertini 808 may be the hook I want. Which of them is lighter wire gauge?
    I suspect the 808 is thinner...

      It will be for skimmers in the winter. I think a lighter hook may well bring a couple of extra bites on a very heavily fished commercial.

        If Drennans advertising blurb and my vernier are correct then the 808's are a slightly (only just) thinner guage wire. Jeez I must be sad to know this---memo to self I must try to get out more!!!!!
        I got a new rod for the wife. I'll miss her, but it's a quality rod.

          But with a name like Tackle Tart, it's the least we would expect!
